A big thank you...and freebie!!!

Oh, my goodness!
I cannot believe the OVERWHELMING response I got from my friends in blog-land the other night!

For those of you who didn't read my previous post from the other day, I entered a Facebook contest to a fantastic store in Toronto (Canada).  They sell embroidered items and I was hoping to win so that I could use the gift certificate towards a few things I need want in my classroom.
Well, I WON!!!

Thank you so much to everyone who "liked" my comment (and those of you who actually wrote a comment - so sweet!).
I really wanted to say thank you for taking the time to do that for me so I created this *free* emergent reader and teacher big book for an Under the Sea theme for everyone.
We are actually starting an Under the Sea theme very soon so I know this will be a great way to introduce the unit to my kiddies....thought you might like it as well!

Next Wednesday is our art show and I cannot tell you how busy we are at our school getting ready for that!  My little kinders have been hard at work...one class made the cutest jellyfish using tissue paper and balloons and the other class made paper mache lobsters that came out awesome!

Sorry I haven't posted pictures for a while...I feel like my plate is so full right now I honestly forgot to snap pictures in the classroom!
I'll post pics soon!
As for me, I'm so beat!  What a week so far...really need Friday night to get here so that I can relax (I hope!).

TGITh tomorrow (okay, so I totally made that up but it's one day closer to the weekend!)
